  1. Warnhinweis "Dokument wurde außerhalb des Buches bearbeitet"

    Wird eine Buchdatei bearbeitet und geschlossen ohne das das Fenster Buch geöffnet ist, wird das Dokument mit dem Warnhinweis "Dokument wurde außerhalb des Buches bearbeitet" markiert.
    Dieser Fehler tritt nicht auf, wenn das Fenster Buch beim Schließen oder Speichern geöffnet bzw. angezeigt wird.
    Es ist kein Grund für dieses Verhalten zu erkennen. In den letzten ID Versionen trat dieser Effekt nicht auf.

  2. book file don't work

    Hi,

    unfortunately it looks like the book file isn't work anymore with InDesign CC 2018.1 in Windows 10.

    On my Mac it is working! I have attached two hardcopies (the one with correct page numbers is from Mac, the other from Windows 10 pro).

    Obviously I tried to create a new book file and added files manually – same result.

    As a result all cross-references between documents are wrong.

    Any ideas?

    Ulrich

  3. Book / Index

    Indesign 2020 15.0, Indesign CC 2019 14.0.3, Indesign CC 2018:
    Crash when generating the index in a book with many chapters.
    The book has 156 chapters (from 1 page to 30 pages) - when updating the index reproducible crash.
    The book has 822 pages.

    Every time I sent an error report - no reaction. I think it depends on the number of documents.

  4. Ability to Add more than One Page at a Time

    I have a "large" technical textbook, in my case 20 chapters and at least 22 indd files, if I wnt to add a page or two to an existing chapter, each time I click the new page icon, it takes a while for InDesign to reassess page and section numbers. Ten clicks of "new page later", it rather timeconsuming.

    How about an option, similar to adding rows/columns to a table, that allows you to specifiy how many pages you would like to add?

    At the moment, adding 10 pages means watching it update section numbers 10 times.

    Kind regards
    Mike…

  5. Indesign

    I have updated from CC 2017 to CC 2018 and opened an existing 740 page book. This is an indesign book file .INDB with 25 chapters and numerous index entries.
     
    When I view the index panel in CC 2017 all the entries are there. Screenshot index-cc2017
     
    When I view the same files in CC 2018 the index panel is completely empty and there is no index at all. Screenshot index-panel2018
     
    AND YES
    I rebuilt the preferences and the exact same thing happens. These screenshots were done after the pref rebuild when I noticed the problem.
    Is there…
